The first of many Readers’ Choice Awards

West Coast Cannabis was voted Business of the Year during our Readers’ Choice Awards this summer. Readers also voted West Coast Cannabis as Best Business Overall (Under 10 employees) and New Business (One Year or Less).

This year, the Jasper Fitzhugh launched the first-ever Readers’ Choice Awards in what we expect to become an annual tradition.

Through our online platform, 167 readers voted for their favourite businesses in five main category families: business, food and beverage, best eating, miscellaneous and top businesses.

Winners and the runners-up were informed beforehand so they had the chance to buy an ad to highlight their win and thank voters.

Of course, not every business was able to afford an ad, which is understandable, but all winners and the runners-up got their names in the paper no matter what.

A Readers’ Choice Award cannot be bought. It can only be earned by our readers. Thank you, and be sure to shop local, because these businesses need your support now more than ever.

Congratulations to the winners listed here, and thank you for everything you do for the community.

And thank you for advertising. Your support keeps local news viable and Jasperites informed! 

See you next year!

Peter Shokeir,
Jasper Fitzhugh
